I tidied up virt-df a bit, added a manpage and pushed it out to the
mercurial repository above.  I might release it in a later Fedora for
people to try out.  At the moment it doesn't really understand LVM,
making it a little bit useless, but that's actually not too hard to
add -- a worthwhile mini-project for someone wanting to learn OCaml.

I wonder if we can do 'virt-free' and 'virt-ps' ...  Quite ambitious :-)
